Higher ed pays — for engineers, nurses

Higher education pays — for technical graduates, concludes a new study. However, “The S in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is oversold,” the report found. Biology and chemistry majors can expect to earn as little as liberal arts majors.

About Joanne


  1. really, most science majors know that they will have to go to graduate school to get a good job in science as most good jobs in science require at least a master’s degree. so they start out on a different track and with a different mindset than those for whom 4 years of college will be the end of their formal education.

    • True, and not too much different than the mindset that the pre-Law and pre-Medical School graduates have. They and the STEM Master’s/PhD students are the cream of the academic crop!
